New life for F18 Fleet at Gosford Sailing Club

Recommended Posts

It's true, over the winter NacraXtreme, NB Laser & Hobie Sports with Gosford Sailing Club have worked together to bring new life to the F18 Fleet within the Sydney Region.

This coming Season 08/09 a new Fleet of F18 Catamarans will compete in a pointscore at Gosford Sailing Club along with the existing A Class boats. Up to "5" F18's are already on board with a good mix of Nacra, Hobie and Capricorn. This should see some exciting racing on the waters of Gosford and along with planned training and tuning days it will be an opportunity for all those new and old to the class to liven things up again.

MAGIC MARINE, NSW has put forward prizes for overall piontscore winners, teams who attend the most races including regattas and best improved throughout the season. For all those wanting to race in a fleet again all are welcome.

A pre season meeting at Gosford Sailing Club to review the format, and facilities is planned for Sat 30th August @ 11.30am and a open invitation is given to all Cat Sailors to come and be part of this new start to a great season of F18 Catamaran Sailing along with the Gosford Sailing Club.

To all,

An update on the fleet numbers for the new season at Gosford Yacht Club,

Nacra F18 - 3 Starters confirmed

Hobie Tiger - 4 confirmed starters with possible 1 other

Capricorn - 1 Boat ready to go. I have a second hand boat to sell as well

A-Class - 2 existing Gosford members

This will give us a fleet of 10 just to start with, I am uncertain of the existing fleet numbers from Gosford Yacht Club so there may be more.

Racing will be Saturdays starting at 1.30pm with afternoon drinks once all are off the water. Hope to see as many boats as possible this season and a reminder of the meeting this coming Sat 30th August at GYC to confirm our Season Point Score and Racing Format.

To all,

Detailed below is the proposed F18 Season to be held out of Gosford Sailing Club, there will be 3 Separate Series run, being MS1 – Hobie Sports, MS2 – NacraXtreme and with the GSC Club Championship this looks like a big start to the year.

We can confirm that 9, F18’s are registered with 1 new F16 and 1 A class to join under a mixed catamaran division being run in conjunction with the F18’s.

During the month of September we will also be undertaking pre season measurement checks, helping to ensure all F18 boats are up to scratch as spot checks will be undertaken during the season so current measurement certificates and stickers will be required for all boats competing.

If anyone requires any additional information please feal free to contact me on the details below or come along to Gosford Sailing Club every Saturday starting 1.30pm from this coming Sat 6th September.
